Medical Record Shredding Services
Doctors are trusted with their patients’ most private information, and it’s important to handle that information with the utmost care. As a medical professional, it’s important to properly dispose of medical records in order to protect patients’ privacy and to protect your office from legal issues.
While you work to provide your patients with the best level of care, you should have a shredding company that puts the same effort into the destruction of your patients’ records. At PROSHRED® Baltimore, we provide the most high-quality shredding services to all of our clients.
Stay in Compliance With Record Destruction Legislation
Healthcare professionals are often in possession of records that contain information known as “Protected Health Information (PHI).” That information is protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which requires medical staff to take several measures to protect patient privacy, including the careful destruction of PHI.
HIPAA regulations emphasize the need for medical offices to teach their employees how to properly dispose of any confidential patient records when they are no longer needed. If you fail to provide that training, and personal health information is leaked or stolen, it could result in legal trouble, and potentially large fines. By choosing PROSHRED® Baltimore for secure document shredding, you can be sure you’re doing your part to follow HIPAA regulations for document disposal.
Product Destruction for Non-Paper Medical Items
Non-paper items can also contain private health information and pose a threat to information security should they not be handled properly. Items that cannot be shredded through our on-site service include prescription containers, medical devices, medical packaging, and other items that can contain confidential information regarding your facility or your patients.
These items shouldn’t be thrown away—using a secure product destruction service like the one provided by PROSHRED® Baltimore will allow you to incinerate confidential items that can’t be put through a shredding machine. Taking these items out of circulation will keep patient and organization information from being jeopardized: you can rely on us and our product destruction services, which we have tailored specifically for healthcare organizations.
